The mission of the Biology Department of Rollins College is to provide an excellent undergraduate life sciences education in the liberal arts tradition. The curricula of our three majors, biology, marine biology, and biochemistry/molecular biology expose students to a wide variety of classroom, laboratory, and field experiences fundamental to the life sciences, enabling them to think critically, learn technical skills for solving biological problems, and to communicate biological information both in oral and written formats. Through selected electives, students may concentrate on specific areas of interest. These majors offer the flexibility to study abroad, minor in another area, or to fulfill requirements for secondary teaching certification. Students also have excellent opportunities to engage in independent research projects. Graduates are prepared to pursue employment in biological laboratories or pursue graduate study in the health professions or biological sciences.
